Take the top off the carboret

Take the top off the carboreta, and look in the bottom of the petrol resivware. I had a recuring problem with mine. The fuel line was breaking down, and occasionally dumped small bits of rubber into the flote chamber. This had the effect of parsually blocking the exit line from the chamber. There is also a wire wool type filter deep in the inlet to the carb, this being parsually blocked could cause a similar problem by stopping fuel getting into the carb to start with.

Any veiws expresed in this thread by me are purely from my own experience, and (sometimes) falible memory. Hope my comments help, but please don't take them as gospel.
